Happy World Wildlife Day!

Hey everyone! Did you know that today is World Wildlife Day! It’s a day to raise awareness about protecting animals and their homes.

Here, at Fuzzy Friends, were all about finding homes for all animals not just pets! 😀

Over the weekend we held a class on how to create a bird house. Bird houses are great in spring, they help our feathered friends find a cozy spot for their nest! 

I had a lot of fun learning about how different seeds attract different birds, like how Blue Jays prefer peanuts! They love to peck at the shell. 

Today, I want to share with you a super easy way to create a bird feeder to hang from a tree branch in your yard!

Easy Bird Feeder

Things you’ll need:

  • A plastic bottle
  • A stick or an old wooden spoon
  • Scissors
  • twine
  • sunflower seeds

Step 1: Take your plastic bottle and remove any label.

Step 2: With your scissors, carefully, cut a hole near the bottom of your bottle the size of your stick. 

Step 3: About an inch above the first hole, cut a second small hole, a bit bigger than the size of a seed.

Step 4: Repeat step 2 and 3 on the other side of the bottle.

*Ask the help of a parent if cutting the bottle is difficult.

Step 5: Slide your stick through both holes to create a perch.

Step 6: Fill the bottle with sunflower seeds.

Step 7: Place the bottle cap back on and tie some twine around the neck of the bottle.

Step 8: Hang your bird feeder on a tree branch or balcony post and wait for birds to visit.

What are your favorite bird species, and why?
